How to Win – Bass Series

There are 3 individual tournaments that take place this summer in New Brunswick.  Each tournament is a catch-photo-release event, that you will need to register via TourneyX.  Participants can enter one, or all of the tournaments, and will be trying to catch a maximum of 5 bass at each event.  At each event, anglers will submit up to 5 best lengths via TourneyX of any bass over 10 inches caught that day.  This will result in a point system based on where you place that tournament, and there will also bonus points available.  Upon completion of the final tournament of the series, the angler with the highest combined point total will be announced as the Hook and Paddle Bass Series Champion.
